Hermann Schranzhofer is Project Senior Scientist and has his focus on Data Stewardship. Therefore he is involved in the development of services and policies for research data management. Hermann studied physics at the Graz University of Technology and finished his PhD in materials science at the Montanuni Leoben. Before he joined the RDM Team, he worked for 15 years at the Institute of Thermal Engineering at Graz University of Technology in research and development. His main focus was on simulations of energy systems including renewable energy and innovative thermal storage. In addition, he also carried out measurements in the laboratory and at demonstration plants.
Miguel Rey Mazón is research assistant and primarily involved in the EOSC Focus project. Miguel has over 10 years experience in technology transfer (IP, spinouts, industry-academia collaborations) and other science management matters (coordination of EU proposals, research networks, etc.). He has a background in physics (PhD in condensed matter physics from the Universidad Autónoma in Madrid, Spain). Prior to joining the RDM Team his most recents jobs have been at the European Sustainable Energy Innovation Alliance (eseia) in Graz and the University of Aberdeen (Scotland, UK).
Mojib Wali is a certified full stack developer with knowledge in various aspects of web development such as front-end and back-end and deployment of web applications. He has experience in multiple programming languages like Python, Java, Typescript, and databases including SQL & NoSQL. In his role at RDM Team, he is working alongside the research team, producing scalable software solutions and collaborating on the various layers of the infrastructure and application development for diverse projects. His interest areas include artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and data analytics.
Claire Jean-Quartier is one of the data stewards at TU Graz. Focusing data science she has been engaged in interdisciplinary topics related to wet and dry biomedical research next to the aspect of sustainability. Her fascination for natural and technical sciences lead to basic research involving all data steps from data generation, mining, processing to sharing and quality assurance. These experiences demonstrated the challenge for open science and the necessity of RDM.
Alexander Gruber is RDM Officer in the RDM team. His responsibilities include data stewardship (consulting, training, policy development, etc.) and project management support for FAIR Data Austria. His main focus is the development of training and introductory material on RDM topics and tools, especially an electronic lab notebook called eLabFTW. A programme for researchers interested in RDM, named Data Champions, is also part of his tasks. He has a Dipl.-Ing. (MSc) in Technical Physics from Graz University of Technology.
David Eckhard is a full stack developer with a special interest in building robust systems. He is currently writing his Master's thesis at University of Technology Graz within the field of Computer Science. Through his studies, previous work and side projects, he has gained experience in building secure, stable and scalable systems as well as easy to use interfaces.
Marthe Bierens is research assistant for the EOSC Focus project, where she primarily focusses on Stakeholder engagement & Management, the updating of the Strategical Research and Innovation Agenda & Technical Development, Monitoring & Impact Assignment and the Sustainability of EOSC. She has worked the last years in project management and strategic advisory for social institutions, organizations and businesses. She has a passion for forming connections between organizations, projects and developments and making them accessible to a wider public. She has a background (Msc.) in Social Sciences.
Laura Thaci is a software developer, where the main task is to optimize new or exisiting applications so that they can be used cross-platform. She has a background (BSc) in Computer Science and has worked in Germany as a frontend developer, now continued remote. Through her previous work and side projects (ARS Electronica), she has gained a deeper understanding of the differences and similiarities between artistic and scientific cultures of reperesentation, as well as the methods for knowledge and research.
